An unkown buyer from Middle Eastern prince has spend £300 million ($482 million!) for a luxurious Airbus A380 private jet, which is being designed by Worcestershire-based firm Design Q.
The converted Airbus A380 is expected to be ready in three years time and will hold the title of the world’s largest private jet.
In a space normally given to 600 passengers, the owner and his guests will enjoy five-star treatment from the moment of arrival.
According to Design Q’s co-founder Gary Doy, the belly of the A380 has been turned into a relaxation zone, including a Turkish bath lined with marble only two millimetres thick to keep the weight down.
Mr Doy added: “It is something very, very special and there is nothing like it on the market yet.
We are not trying to put a hotel in the air, it is tailored to the needs of flying, and has unique features which fit into that.
The Turkish bath is particularly spectacular, a steam room with marble, low lights and lots of spa treatments to choose from.”
There is also a unique well-being room that has floors and walls turned into giant screens showing the ground below. Guests can enjoy a unique flying experience by stepping on to the magic carpet as a cool scented breeze blows in the room.
Some of the other features of this luxurious jet include an onboard garage and a lift that shuttles between the three magnificent floors, from the private quarters upstairs, down to the concert hall.
The flying Palace has five suites with king-size beds, high-tech entertainment systems and prayer room with computer controlled mats that always face Mecca.
Besides private suites there is also a board room for mid-air business meetings and 20 ‘sleepers’ – the equivalent of First Class seats – for extra guests.
